OVERVIEW OF POSITION: The Communications Manager is a critical role at the organization focused on supporting Rebuilding Together Philadelphia’s mission through the delivery and execution of marketing campaigns and efforts that increase awareness and support within our community including homeowners, volunteers, donors and other key stakeholders. Our goal is, over time, to be able to have the Communications Manager build out a full team to support this work.

The Communications Manager will develop and execute a robust marketing and communications plan with the input and oversight of the CEO and Development Director. The plan will effectively convey RTP’s programming and fundraising efforts. A key element is providing an asset-based and power-sharing approach to talking with and about homeowners and community stakeholders. The Communications Manager oversees external communications for the organization and is responsible for broadcasting our work through digital media, social media, email marketing and the RTP website. The Communications Manager collaborates with the Development Director on the creation of focused communications initiatives around RTP’s core programs. The individual in this role will also support the content and execution needs of key fundraising and development initiatives including the annual appeal cycle, Run to Rebuild (annual 5k run and RTP’s largest fundraising event), and annual Volunteer Appreciation Party.

The Communications Manager will be joining a team where we all have each other’s back. The way we work is as important as the work we accomplish. RTP staff celebrate each other’s achievements, provide constructive feedback, and share decision-making. RTP is committed to the deep and often uncomfortable work of striving to be anti-racist, sharing power, and supporting LGBTQ+ equality. RTP strives to be a safe place for all employees.
